    Pick your Aus/NZ/SA team on form/reputation.

    1. Robinson
    2. Moore
    3. Baxter
    4. Horwill
    5. Sharpe
    6. Elsom ( If he doesn't come back, then McMenimum)
    7. Smith
    8. Brown

    9. Burgess
    10. Giteua
    11. Mitchell
    12. Barnes
    13. Mortlock
    14. Ioane
    15. Gerrard

    16. Polota-Nau
    17. Alexander
    18. Mumm
    19. Palu
    20. Genia
    21. O'Connor
    22. Horne

    I probably wouldn't have Barnes there as his forms been below average this year but he played well last year. No Tuqiri in my side but he'll manage to get a starting spot because he's Lote Tuqiri.

    Mine is pretty uninteresting but here it is.

    1. Tony Woodcock
    2. Kevin Mealamu
    3. Neemia Tialata
    4. Brad Throne
    5. Ali Williams
    6. Liam Messam
    7. Richie Mcaw (He should be back well before then)
    8. Rodney So'oialo
    9. Jimmy Cowan (Him over Weepu only because Weepu can cover 9 and 10 making him more of a utility)
    10. Steven Donald (If Danial Carter isn't back and Luke Mcalister isn't allowed to compete)
    11. Joe Rokocoko (If he is in in form)
    12. Ma'a Nonu
    13. Comrad Smith
    14. Liliam Mesaga
    15. Mils Muliena

    16. Andrew Hore
    17. Jamie Makintosh (Or John Shwalger)
    18. Ross Filipo
    19. Adam Thompson
    20. Peri Weepu
    21. Hosea Gear
    22. Cory Jane (or Toeava)

    No Sivivatu due to injury as well as not being as good in my opinion as Hosea Gear. Dan Carter i don't think will be ready.

    4. Not sure on another lock. Thorn maybe?
    3. Don't like any of the props either....

    1. Woodcock

    Nothing exciting... I do have a bad feeling about the Tri-Nations for us though...

    Need a first five other than Donald. Not many world class locks either, despite trying to bring a few in in the last year or two...

    Yeah I agree that our loose props suck. We really relied on Greg Sommerville and Carl Hayman (Who I wish would come home before 2011). I hate it how Tialata does side steps and then runs...what, a 127kg prop sidestepping a wing...come on.

    For NZ the Chiefs back three have to be in.

    I like Kaftka's team, but bring in Messam at 6.

    wally Tuqiri and Turner are f***ing shithouse.

    I do like Sivivatu, however I think he is a very good Super 14 player who dosn't perform at his best in internationals, he seems to hold back and dosn't run it up as much as I like in backs, whereas Joe Rokocoko does run it up and beats everyone on a good day...the problem being is he hasn't had a good day in a while which sucks as I hope he beats Doug Howlett's try scoring record. I like Hosea as he is a very powerful runner and he dosn't try to be as fancy as Sivivatu. Mesaga gets in because in the competition so far he would be the brightest star followed in my opinion by Speis.

    Haven't seen much of the Tahs this year but what I have seen of Turner has been pretty encouraging. He has speed, and has more individual skill then most Australian wingers running around. He's scored some pretty awesome tries. Admittedly I do have a bit of soft side for Tuqiri; but he breaks tackles, ties up defenders and generally always gets over the advantage line. It is like having another loosey on the field, and has played pretty dominant part in unleashing some of the more basic finishers. Trust me, I wish we had blokes like Sivivatu, Rokocoko, Masaga and the countless number of pacy SA wingers running around, but we don't. For me, Ioane would be more destructive in the last thirty minutes of the game, where he can cover outside centre and wing off the bench.

    19. Kaino
    20. Weepu
    21. Kahui
    22. Toeava

    No need for Donald IMO as Weepu is cover at both 9 and 10 meaning we have the option for two extra outside backs in Kahui and Toeava. I have a disliking for Thompson which is why I have Kaino on the bench in his place. I would love to include Masaga but I can't find any room for him in my team.

    On form I would pick Masaga over Joe atm..

    Oh definitely, but thats the thing about Joe. Never select him based on S14 form, just throw him the national jersey in any situation and he'll deliver.

    7. Smith

    11. Tuqiri
    12. O'Connor (distroyed barnes last weekend)

    14. Turner
    15. Hynes (I rate him as a full back)

    19. Pocock
    20. Phibbs
    21. Barnes

    I'm not saying this team will be the Wallibies team for the tri-nations, i simply picked it on form and potential...

    18 Boric
    19 Messam
    20 Cowan
    21 Toeava
    22 Kahui

    Leonard at halfback because Donald will be at first five. Thompson is having a great season. Rokocoko steps up in te AB jersey. Mealamu over Hore simply due to the Props being both Blues teammates. Messam on the bench for his versatility. Masaga won't make the ABs due to his injury, very unfortunate.

    Don't see many changes from last year. I won't be suprised if Kainois still starting, he played well for the ABs last year.
